Out of the Park Baseball 16 is available online (and through Steam) today. For the first time, the game is licensed by Major League Baseball and Minor League Baseball. It includes official league logos, team logos and jerseys for all 30 MLB teams, over 150 MiLB league and team logos, and historical MLB logos.
After a better-than-expected April, the New York Mets are off to a dismal start in May. (Hopefully Sunday’s last-minute come-from-behind Mother’s Day win over the Philadelphia Phillies will be the start of the turnaround, but for now I’ll just enjoy it for what it is – a game we’ll see many times on “Mets Classics” this winter.)
Fortunately, the nice folks at Out of the Park Developments offered me a free copy of their latest baseball simulation game if I would agree to write about it. While I can’t do a thing about the real Mets’ lineup or bullpen, I’ve got full control over the organization in the Out of the Park (OOTP) Baseball 15 world.
Well, I still have to answer to digital Fred Wilpon, and he’s expecting the Mets to play .500 ball. But that’s a reasonable goal, right?
